I have a 2009 Agility that I bought new from a dealer in 2010. I know have just under 3500mk on it.
At 1000km the scooter started riding really rough and I noticed that the front shocks lost their cushioning and were noisey when u pushed down on the front of the scooter.
Shortly after that, when I would ride the scooter over 40mph it seemed like the back tire was wobbling. Putting the scoote ron the stand and reving it up I did not see the tire woblle but it still felt like it was doing so when riding.
I rode it for about another month until I decided that it seriously needed to be looked at.
So I took it to a dealer (Note: the dealer I bought it from was 175 miles form me. I bouhgt it there because i was staying in that area for awhile, but had sinced moved back home)
I took it to the local dealer. ZTold them that something was wrong with the front shocks(they supposedly took them apart and said nothing was wrong with them. I told them that this was BS. The mechanic even pushed down on the front of the scooter and told me the shocks didnt seem right) The dealer put different fluid it in and said it was fixed. So I go to pick it up, ride it around the block for a test ride and it still feels the same and is still making the "squish sound" . This dealer wanted me pay them $125 for working on it even though it was still WELL under warranty. I refused and told them the problem was not fixed and I just took my scooter.
I rode it for a few more months and the problems just got worse with it. Soo I took it back to the Origianl dealer in Monroe, WA. The guy unloaded it and rode it a short distance into their grage. He came back and said that it seemed like there was something up with the front end because he could tell how rode it rough just from riding it the 100ft. or so.
I waited 2hr and they supposedly took the front end apart and inspected it and could not find an issue. They took it off the lift and this big 300lb mechanic got on it and rode it away for about 10 minutes and came back and said that there was nothing wrong with it. "Your joking" I said. By this time Im getting pretty pissed. I told the guy who unloaded it (the fornt counter guy) that I was really worried about it and that something was not right with it. His exact words were "just ride it, it'll be ok, your tires wont fall off or anything"
SO, I took it back home and rode it for a few more months with the same problems, no suspension cushion and wobbly feeling back tire. THEN the belt started slipping on it. By this time there is about 2500km on it. I decided to take it to a DIFFERENT shop then the first shop in my town. The mechanic rode it then took off the belt and showed me the belt--it needed to be replaced "Great im out $250 for parts and labor cuz the warranty wont cover belts".
I ask the mechanic is that was common for a belt to go out this early and he said that it was very strange. He said it can happen with novice riders, but I have been riding for 20yrs.
He replaced the belt and I rode it and the perofrmance was now once again fine and the back wheel wobble was gone. "GREAT".
I paid the shop and took it home.
This brings me to about 2 months ago. I was riding it and noticed that the scooter was falling flat on its face from a dead stop. I could floor it and it would accelarate very slowly. I didnt feel the belt slipping though. That wa suntil 3 days ago. Now when I take off from a stop i can feel it slipping again.
WTF is up with this thing? I still have 5 months left on my 2yr warranty and this thing still rides rough, and has no power form a dead stop. Im tired of taking it to the shops and having to PAY for work that I shouldn't have too. I'll be damned if Im going to pay for another belt. It only has 800 miles on it since the new belt was put on.
Im looking for ideas on how to persue this. I tsitll owe the finance company $400 on this thing, and I dont even ride it because its literally falling apart.
What would you guys do if you were in my situation?
